Well I just want to share my experience with 70-431 test!

Number of Questions: 40

Passing score: 700

Testing Center: Vue

Materials used: MS SQL Server 2005 Pocket Adminstrator and Books on Line.

 

In my opnion the test wasn't as hard as I thought, for seasoned DBA's concentrate on new features!

Questions: Service Broker, Database Mirroring, CLR, and XML Data Types

Typical questions: Protocols, Backup\Restore Scenarios, Troubleshooting Scenarios, SQL Server behind a firewall......

 

I wish there was more study material availiable, I have also went through the FREE MS ELearning stuff for SQL Server.

 

Next Test will be 70-447 the Upgrade test for MCDBA's.......

i think this is a different approach unlike others but i think this would be interesting you will get to know the web based applications and then MCSA which is inclined towards networking rather desktop networking .

 

Gud pal go ahead !!

Of couse I wrote this to Prometric, and recieved auto letter that in 2 business days I will recieve the answer about my issue. And " The first thing you should do is get a detail report." I didn't recieve my exam report at the end of exam to see on which areas I failed, because of Printer problem, simply it didn't print. The men in the center tried to fix it, changed a cartridge, but it didn't help. How long time takes to get retake exam or vaucher from Prometric/Microsoft?

I was implementing some mirrored database with sql 2005, when I decided to read all the self paced training kit, and I passed 70-431 some days ago.

Not so difficult. Experience + this forum -> pass

 

Bye

Hi People!

I'm newbie on certifications and I have one question:

 

Is there any requirement to attend any official Microsoft classroom training to take 70-431 exam?, complete any in-class courses? Or just preparing and clearing it from any test center is enough?

Thanks
